A classic example of a beer mild in hops but not in flavour. Sweetness balanced by bitter chocolate malt to produce a rare but much sought after traditional mild.

Bardzo dobre i wytrawne w smaku piwo typu mild Ale. Ciemna barwa, średnia ale utrzymująca się piana na powierzchni podczas picia. W smaku wyrażnie zaznacza się wytrawna chmielowa goryczku, która pozostaje dłógo po przełknięciu na podniebieniu. Wyrażnie czuć palony słód.

Non trovo un momento per non berla, sempre appagante e non invasiva urla alla rivoluzione proletaria dei malti contro l’impero capitalista dei luppoli!

Cask. Jerusalem Tavern, London. Brown colour with a beige head. Malty and fruity aroma. Malty, but light flavor. Nuts, chocolate/caramel, roastiness, lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Very balanced and very drinkable. In good condition. I really liked it. Too bad mild is an almost non existing beer style in sweden.

Aromas of heavily roasted malt and woodsmoke, caramel and chocolate. In taste this is quite bitter for a mild, and this complements the powerful smokey aromas well. Very good.

bartlebier (2815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2015
Beautiful 500ml US-style medicine bottle, St. Peters sampler D&M. For a 3,7% ale, very rich with roasted, chocolate and woody malt subtleties paired with spicy berry and orchard hops. Satisfying textured mouthfeel for the abv as well, whilst going down easy like café frappé. Hints of treacle, hinting at savoury flavours, then mostly mild indeed chocolate syrup, noisette. - Did not realise "Mild" was a dark style, but if these are supposed to be sessionable porters like this, I’d be happy to consider an on-site crash course in this underappreciated traditional style.

Good old Waitrose. I love mild (even though this is actually a modern low density stout and ’mild’ doesn’t mean more that ’fresh’ anyway but hey, who cares? Not even me and I’m writing this.) Great milky mouth-feel with lovely. Hint of sweetness and quite dry. The hop finish is quite bitter-chocolate and leafy and it lasts for quite a while. Lots of burnt malt and the mildest hint of smoked sausage. Downable stuff.

Cask at the Jerusalem Tavern, London on 2nd July 2014. Deep ruby with thin dying laceless ring-and-film. Malty aroma with mild delicate spicy notes. Malty liquid with burnt caramel, berries, spices and resins. Finish develops a fine bitter theme. Smooth yet engaging texture. Well-crafted mild.
